Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
Triangle-shaped UFO hovering over I-495 near Holy Cross Hospital.

While driving to work on the westbound lanes of I-495 in Silver Spring, I noticed extremely bright lights in the distance. There were 2 white lights with a red-light in the center then 2 more white lights.

At first it looked like lights from a plane, but they weren’t moving at all, so then I thought maybe aircraft warning lights for a crane, but as I drove closer, I noticed that the lights were just hovering motionless over the highway. I thought it could be a helicopter but I saw not rotors and heard no engines.

When I drove underneath it I saw the dark triangle like shape with wings swept back with a tail. It reminded me of a backward X-29 plane with the cockpit being the tail but with no engines just a rounded triangle with the lights on the wings.

It was hovering approximately 200 feet above the I-495 outer loop across from Holy Cross Hospital. There was a lot of traffic and I couldn’t have been the only one to see that it was not a plane or helicopter.
